On 1 March 2012, the European Commission launched its European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on raw materials, which covers both industrial and construction materials. The following five work packages have been included in the EIP:
Member States and all relevant stakeholders can participate in this EIP. The aim is to develop joint strategies, pulling together capital and human resources and ensuring the implementation and dissemination of innovative solutions within Europe.
In addition, CEOs representing major EU industries have the opportunity of taking part in the High Level Steering Group (HLSG) which will develop the strategic direction of the EIP and the Board of CEMBUREAU will press for participation from CEOs of cement companies.
This EIP is the result of the Commission consultation on the same issue to which CEMBUREAU responded in April 2011.
